I have a black one that is no longer on my truck (pictured below). I believe you will also need a 2011-12 grill surround. I have one of those too but it needs to be painted. I was just down in your neck of the woods last weekend. You should take a ride to Maine.

I have one I bought to put on my XLT but took it off a while back to put the chrome one back on. I'd be interested in selling, Im in central Mass. PM me.

And I'd correct your sir to ma'am, but I'd like to think there's no way I'm old enough to be a ma'am yet ;-)
lol

@kllarkin, my apologies young lady. I certainly meant no disrespect. I've always said, "A Woman and her truck is a beautiful thing."


BTW, look up. There's two grills waiting for you. I sure these will be much cheaper than a new one.

No worries at all [MENTION=60404]Wanted33[/MENTION], it didn't come across as disrespectful at all

I've PM'ed both people from above, but now trying to figure out if I actually can put the 11/12 grille on a 2013, I keep finding conflicting information

If the clips on the grills haven't changed, and I couldn't see any reason Ford would have done that, I can't see why it wouldn't fit. There no changes in the truck body between those years. However, one never knows what a car company will do. Good luck.

The 6 bar grill was actually a $600+ optional add-on for configuring 2013s online if I remember correctly. Think it was only chrome though.

Thanks [MENTION=60404]Wanted33[/MENTION]! Finally found info from people who were able to trade grilles between 12&13, as long as it included the surround. I guess the clips have changed in that the inserts alone aren't interchangeable... took some digging though!

PM sent. I have a black 2011 FX4 and would rather have the 2012/13 grill.

2011 and 2012 grills are the same.

This is the one I'm looking for. 2013 I guess.


I have the 6 bar grill pictured earlier in the thread.
